Steelers Sack Machine - How Many?

A great predictor last season was trying to guess how many sacks (and who will get them) of the Steelers for the 2010 season.

So here is your challenge, first guess how many times the Steelers will bring down opposing QBs this season, and if you are ballsy, try picking the individual numbers for each member of the latest incarnation of Blitzburgh

Last season the Steelers were number one in the league in sacks with 48. Can we break 50 this year?

Also, belated congrats to Alba, who correctly predicted 48 sacks last season. Majority of people predicted in excess of 50 sacks, hell some even predicted in excess of 60-70

Here are the guys numbers for last year, just for your own reference:

LineBackers:

James Harrison  - 10.5

LaMarr Woodley - 10.0

James Farrior - 6.0

Lawrence Timmons - 3.0

Jason Worilds - 2.0

Larry Foote - 1.0

 

Defensive Line:

Ziggy Hood - 3.0

Brett Keisel - 3.0

Nick Eason - 1.5

Casey Hampton - 1.0

 

Defensive Backs:

William Gay - 2.0

Bryant McFadden - 2.0

Troy Polamalu - 1.0

Anthony Madison - 1.0

Ike Taylor - 1.0

 

Thats the spread of sacks for last season. Post your predictions below. Epic bragging rights up for grabs, plus you can have a bit of fun dreaming up about Pittsburgh defenders favorite pastime.
